Bring your Baby to Work

This week I was fortunate enough to be able to bring Baby L to work with me. I honestly think he knew he was in for a treat because he was smiley all morning. I'm lucky to currently work somewhere that values family. If your your workplace is suitable for a baby and you're allowed to bring yours along, I'd do it. It makes the day fly by and your mood will be better than it is on any other workday.  

When we arrived at my job, everyone was so excited to meet him. Aside from an early hangry meltdown, he was pretty content. He even took longer than usual naps, which I suspect was due in part to him being introduced to so many new people and a new place. 

I made sure to pack extra outfits in case he needed to be changed and four to five toys to keep him occupied while I was busy. He played in his stroller and on my lap while I did my work and surprisingly, I was able to finish all of my tasks for the day. I felt like a supermom for sure. 

It might not be possible to do this as often as I'd like but I am definitely going to bring him again. There was such a shift in my office aura for me. I was so much happier to be with him all day AND determined to finish my work. It felt so nice to be able to share a day in my life with him. We took quite a few photos because I want to be able to show him that I try my very best to spend time with him even though I'm a working mom. 

This was just another day in my life as a mommy. Balance. It's the one word is describe what life is like now. Balancing his needs, my needs, my husband's needs and the needs of our little family. I'm still figuring it all out but I'm getting better at it everyday.
